DC8C is one of the most flexible compressors around.
While making a lot of different compression styles possible, it's general nature may be described as: clear, smooth, open, distinct.
The main goal while designing DC8C was to get a very clean compressor action without unwanted and often almost inevitable
artifacts/distortion. This way you can achieve almost invisible compression for your most demanding mastering sessions, when you want
to avoid coloration. If you aim for color you can choose between two saturation models. From opto style, peak compression,
external side-chaining, RMS compression, Feedback, Feedforward compression (and everything in-between) to negative ratios, zero latency
brick-wall limiting, from snappy transient treatment to smooth transient rounding - everything is possible.
DC8C is available in
the following formats (all included in one single license):
Windows: VST (32&64Bit), VST3 (32&64Bit), RTAS, AAX Native for ProTools® 11 or higher Mac OSX: AU (32&64Bit), VST (32&64Bit), VST3 (32&64Bit), RTAS, AAX Native for ProTools® 11 or higher
Please note, that external side-chaining isn't implemented yet in the AAX64 version
